Breaking The Cycle


JDOT is a domestic and sexual abuse awareness and prevention curriculum for 4-12 grades, hosting meetings and workshops in school and community settings. 

Low-wealth communities are no more or less likely to experience domestic violence (DV). But, poverty can worsen the traumas associated with DV because of a lack of resources and escape options.


African-Americans are disproportionately affected by DV because of exposure to social violence, racial trauma, and socioeconomic factors like unemployment. As a result, children in our service area are at higher risk of witnessing or experiencing violence. 

JDOT helps those who have experienced or witnessed DV:

  1. Recognize characteristics of healthy & unhealthy relationships

  2. Process trauma

  3. Safely report violence and get help

  4. Set life goals that include personal safety
